Mary Catelli | 232 comments A far future story about two human cultures adapting and surviving after the Betrayal, where AIs started to turn humanity into nanotech gray goo.

About a tramp spaceship from the Disconnect, a culture that reverted to analog computers.

Virginia Rand How realistic are the 'analog computers'? Or are they powered by handwavium?


Mary Catelli | 232 comments Analog computers actually exist:

Virginia Rand I know they do, but I can't imagine trying to run a space faring vessel with only analog computers. And I can't see how that would be anything but a hindrance when facing nanotech.

I'm not trying to be down on the book, I'm just trying to separate science fiction from science fantasy.
